GSA Greenlights Google Cloud

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) spends a heckuva a lot of money every year, and now some of that scratch is heading Google's way. The GSA just finished migrating its old e-mail system to Google Apps for Government. The migration included 17,000 users and took half a year.

Now the GSA wants to set the scene for other federal agencies to move to cloud e-mail. Ultimately, nearly a million government mailboxes could migrate to the Internet. This could be a massive test case for the feasibility of large-scale cloud projects.

Has the cloud proven itself to you yet, and if not, why? Shoot your answers to me across the ether to [email protected].
